Bar keeper exceptionally friendly and helpful, since it was our first night in the area. Food was quick and satisfying, and the view to the lake was delightful.

Ate here with a group of friends at the weekend. Very welcoming and friendly staff, food was excellent - freshly cooked and plenty of it, just the job after a day in the hills!

I and my friends prefer to relax and unwind in beautiful and friendly places. This restaurant covers all of that. Then there is the amazing freshly cooked food, carefully selected ingredients; hot, plentiful, beautifully and colourfully presented, and so good it almost stops conversation! Everyone's tastes are catered for, but for those of us who are Vegetarian or Vegan, this... More

Visited for lunch. Ordered a burger with chips and garlic bread. I was surprised that the chips weren't included in the price of the main, but nevertheless ordered them as extra. Glad I did as they were amazing, and so was the garlic bread. Proper rustic, home cooked food. The lady serving was also very friendly and made sure we... More
